Weimer rode to a third-place finish at the 2005 U.S. Open of Supercross in the 125 class – his first race for the Factory Connection Honda team. In 2006, Weimer rode in the AMA West Supercross Lites Series and the AMA Motocross Lites Series. The entire year proved to be a difficult one for him as injuries forced him to miss most of both series. He was still able to muster a thirteenth in the final West Supercross Lites Series standings, as well as 31st in the Motocross Lites Series. Always riding well in Las Vegas, Weimer posted a strong second-place finish in the Lites class at the 2006 US Open before heading into the 2007 season with fresh confidence.
The 2007 season was Weimer’s coming-out season. Aboard his SoBe/No Fear Honda CRF250R, Weimer rode to a strong fourth place year-end finish in the AMA Supercross Lites West Region Series. He piloted his machine to another solid finish in the final AMA Motocross Lites Championship standings, earning sixth place against some very fast and talented competition.
Weimer’s 2008 season didn’t start out so well when he failed to make the main event at round one of the Lites West at Anaheim Stadium, but he stepped up to win round two in Phoenix. He as inconsistent throughout the year, though, and could only manage fifteenth in the points standings before heading outdoors, where he scored a podium finish at the Mt. Morris National.
Weimer proves that hard work and persistence can overcome anything. Instead of blasting into the pro ranks with wins, he built and improved steadily each year until he had become one of the best Lites riders around, and he then captured last year’s Lites West Championship. This year finds him working on rising through the Supercross class ranks on a 450.
Weimer spent his amateur career battling against high-powered opponents, including multi-time champion Ryan Villopoto. Even up against such tough competition, he was still able to earn six amateur titles between 2002 and 2004. In his final visit to Loretta Lynn’s in 2005, Weimer rode to second-place finishes in both the 125 A Class and the Four Stroke 201cc-650cc Class.
Weimer is working hard to advance his career by training with Randy Lawrence. When he can find a day off from racing or training, Weimer likes to go play riding in the hills and snowboard. Sam Wappelhorst
